I would have thought thats a really good price seeing as its a good engine. Im sure you can make some good money back with the rest of it too.

got in a multi story last night with it, only scraped slightly

i've never had any other exhaust except magnex, got to my one of my fav's
wanted the 3" really, but this is a compromise,

next on the plan is to chop away a big of the bumper, and get the tailpipe to sit a bit higher to it looks better
